Practical Joke in Article Acknowledgements

I fully intended to include the below acknowledgements after the final round of peer review for an article that I wrote on working memory, neuroscience and artificial intelligence.

The article can be found here:

I really thought it would be fun to include a nod to some of my favorite fictional scientists, people who actually HAVE influenced my thoughts about science over the years. I decided not to include it out of respect for the journal, but I wanted to make it available here on my blog.
Acknowledgements:

I would like to express my gratitude to Reed Richards, Hank McCoy, Thomas Wayne, and Thaddeus Bodog Sivana for fruitful and encouraging discussions. I would also like to thank Nick Rivera, Elmer Hartman and Steve Brule who have taken the time to read and comment on the manuscript as I am greatly indebted for their thoughtful help and criticisms. Special thanks to Otto Octavius, Henry Pym, Victor von Doom and Ultron V for thoughtful feedback on technical aspects of A.I. architectures. I dedicate this article to these fine friends. This research was made possible due to generous support from the SHIELD bureau, the HAMMER agency, the Hydra organization, Wayne Enterprises, Oscorp Technologies, Capsule Corporation, Globex Industries, LexCorp International. and Stark Resilient.
